Your phrase of "a couple decades" got my smiling as I started flying R/C in 78 which is a bit more that a couple decades ago.

Yes but you obviously have been enjoying the hobby the entire time and that is what counts. Sometimes I think I enjoyed the hobby more when it was simple. Now that I feel that I need to get every airplane dialed in as close to perfection as possible maybe not so much fun. Getting ready to move to a different state, that may build my enthusiasm a bit more when I meet my new club members. Staying away from the negative jerks here on RCU may be a wise move as well. Used to be a hobby where we all supported one another. With these forums it's appearing some miserable people just want to try to make others miserable. I feel pity for guys like that.

I raced drag boats for a lot of years. 8 to 12 races a summer, miles driving, short weeks.... It was just like a job! Get home Sunday pm/Monday early am, go to work, come home, unload, service, load, by then it is Thursday night. Work Friday, leave for god knows where...
(stick with me)
We were getting decent, then good, then considered (who cares what we were considered), that puts more pressure on to win the next one, then, start all over, repeat, start, ,repeat...
The point is... I took a year off... the next y ear, went to 2 to 4 races.... then maybe 6 ish.... II WAS FUN AGAIN. No pressure to win. Everyone knows we had some success..... nothing to prove..... It was back to fun!!
Take off a year.... then go back to it..... you might see a lot of things differently.
Good luck.

Unfortunately I have been unable to fly for about 2 months now. Between work, moving my dad into an elder care facility, emptying out his house 120 miles away, selling off some of his assets, planning a move to Oregon and poor weather. RCU has been my way of keeping active in the hobby and it always gives me a boost when I am able to help out fellow modelers . Unfortunately it appears I have a stalker or two that wants to follow me around and make trouble.
